South Korea police raids office of an anti-North Korea activist

The office of an activist whose anti-North Korea leafleting campaign has escalated tensions on the Korean Peninsula, has been raided by the South Korean Police on Friday, June 26.

Park Sang-hak, a North Korean refugee has been in the spotlight after North Korea abruptly used his campaign of having launched balloons carrying propaganda leaflets toward North Korea for years, as a justification for a series of provocative steps against South Korea.

Defending himself, Park said that his leafleting was done with an aim to inform North Korean residents of the truth about their government and added to  keep sending balloons to them.

The officers raided the Seoul office of Park in order to confiscate leaflets, account books and other related materials. Park will be summoned for an investigation soon, said the Seoul Metropolitan Police Agency.
